Credit guru Eddie Pacey has launched a channel consultancy to provide advisory services for resellers, distributors and vendors.
During his 19 years at Bell Microproducts, Pacey became the poster boy for the credit sector by raising its profile in the IT industry and separating the discipline from finance, until he left the business in October following its acquisition by Avnet TS.
"Having sat back for six months closely watching events unfold, I am excited at the opportunity of entering the channel once more," said Pacey, as he formally lifted the covers off EP Credit Management and Consultancy Ltd.
The practice will push contract credit management services, training, receivables management, process automation, fraud prevention, risk and opportunity profiling, business development and outsourced risk management.
Pacey has also got a track record of helping resellers looking to acquire, sell or seek additional investment, with countless business owners praising his involvement in their operations when he left Bell.
"I remain deeply interested in where [the channel is] heading and relish the opportunity to contribute a little more to such a vibrant but ever changing sector, one on which I can now comment more freely as an independent analyst," he said.
